Three Super Foods That Keeps Your Gut Active And Healthy!

If something feels off…it is your gut feeling! It is your guide to, what should go on your plate for dinner tonight.

Does your gut say two ghee-soaked fried Aloo parathas or a portion of Methi tawa parathas with aloo rasewala made with one spoon of groundnut oil? Does your gut say fried fish and chips or the grilled version of the same with veggies on the side?

The gut says it all and all we have to do is listen!

“All diseases begin in the gut” -Hippocrates. We are realizing this now; 2000 years after Hippocrates said it. An unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, obesity, arthritis, depression, irritable bowel syndrome and the list is long.

But revealing these three super –foods that can make you start trusting that gut again.

Fish oil is rich in omega-3, fatty acids that may reduce inflammation and recommended for digestive issues including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel diseases. Sharing a small secret- walnut, soybean and eggs are a great source of Omega-3. Did I forget the good ol’ hilsa, pomfret, salmon? Go for it.  Happy dining!

Vitamin B

Vitamin B’s are water-soluble, meaning you can’t store them away in your fat cells to use later; they need to be a regular part of your diet. If you had that one little extra glass of wine at house party yesterday, make bananas your new best friend. It will help you in the breakdown of not only alcohol but also carbohydrates, fats. An apple can do the trick too.

Regardless of whether people understand what “rich in antioxidants” means or not, it is certainly a stamp on products that state “Buy me, I will make you live longer” which is your license to indulge in dark chocolate. Our very own “Laung” or clove and beetroot are the saviors of a troubled gut, Anti-oxidants in the house!

Always trust your gut. Your brain can be fooled and your heart is an idiot but your gut doesn’t know how to lie.
